Smooth and consistent Trevor Andrew of Falmouth, N.S., is one of the best snowboarders in the business. Last season he placed third overall on the FIS World Cup circuit halfpipe standings. The highlight was a victory at Mt-Ste-Anne, Que., before more than 4,000 spectators which included his mother who hadn't seen him compete in nearly three years. The 19-year-old Canadian champion admits Nova Scotia wasn't exactly a skiing or snowboard hotbed growing up but that didn't dampen his spirit for the sport . "Learning to ride in Nova Scotia was a great thing for me because it taught me to use the resources I had but still have super fun, even though there were small hills and limited skate spots there," he said.
